Product Description

When a devastating hit knocks a professional football legend and quarterback Cap Rooney (Denis Quaid) out of the game, a young, unknown third-stringer is called in to replace him. Having ridden the bench for years because of a string of bad luck stories and perhaps insufficient character, Willie Beaman (Jamie Foxx) seizes what may be his last chance, and lights up the field with a raw display of athletic prowess. His stunning performance over several games is so outstanding and fresh it seems to augur a new era in the history of this Miami franchise, and forces aging coach Tony D'Amato (Al Pacino) to reevaluate his time-tested values and strategies and begin to confront the fact that the game, as well as post-modern life may be passing him by. Adding to the pressure on D'Amato to win at any cost is the aggressive young President/Co-owner of the team, Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz), now coming into her own after her father's death. Christina's driving desire to prove herself in a male dominated world is intensified by her focus on the marketing and business of football, in which all coaches and players are merely properties.

Any Given Sunday, Oliver Stone's salute-cum-exposé of pro football, belabors some pretty obvious points for nigh onto three hours; but between the frenetic editing, the pounding rap-music beats, and several flashy performances, it's certainly never dull. Al Pacino, coach of the fictional Miami Sharks (the NFL declined involvement in this production), struggles with the most time-honored of sports movie dilemmas: what to do with the old friend who's past his prime and the young hotshot who could save the franchise but first has to learn what being a team player is all about. Comedian Jamie Foxx does a marvelous dramatic turn as the rookie quarterback whose ego and talent are equally impressive, while Pacino seems more at ease in Oliver Stone Land than any actor since regular James Woods (on hand as well as a sleazy team doctor). Prowling the sidelines, shouting spittle-flecked orders, seizing up in almost physical pain when a play goes the wrong way, Pacino is as unashamedly--and entertainingly--hyperbolic as Stone's whirling montages of boiling storm clouds, bloodthirsty fans, and players smashed into the mud. (Once again football, perhaps the most sophisticated of team sports, is viewed cinematically as a bunch of guys hitting each other in slow motion.) Unfortunately, all the self-conscious mythologizing and pumped-up macho posturing that Stone can muster doesn't conceal a clichéd, slapped-together script, whose few good ideas (mostly about race in America) jostle about with several hoary, terrible ones--including a too-literal analogy of football players as modern gladiators. (To drive the point home, Stone includes Charlton Heston--the aging Ben-Hur--in one of many star-powered cameos.) All in all, Any Given Sunday is never dull, but never very enjoyable, either. --Bruce Reid

5.0 out of 5 stars Any Given Sunday August 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This was truly an excellent film. This movie is Oliver Stone's best since Platoon. The fast-moving and dizzying cinemaphotography fits the high adrenaline atmosphere of the professional football world well. The film is also perfectly cast. Pacino gives life to the head coach, and Cameron Diaz's clearly most intense role as the team's owner is believeable. James Woods gives an excellent performance as the team doctor, who doesn't really seem to care about anyone but himself. Jamie Foxx has a breakthrough dramatic role as the new hotshot quarterback, whose ritualistic vomiting adds humor to the movie. With his performance, we find out Foxx really can act. LL Cool J, also puts through a convincing performance as the team's running back. Dennis Quaid doesn't really do much as the former QB with injury problems except help to develop Pacino's character. An outstanding cast, that features Charlton Heston as the football comissioner, and Ann-Margaret as Cameron Diaz's alcoholic mother. Former pro football players Jim Brown and Lawrence Taylor pop up as members of the team. I recommend it highly. This is possibly the best sports movie ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Football made interesting September 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Oliver Stone once again manages to put together an insightful masterpiece and despite American football as its main feature, this film is intensely entertaining and with a hot hip hop/rap/r&B soundtrack along with an impressive A list cast, Any Given Sunday can't go wrong. Al Pacino as the coach is godd, as he always is, but I found the real stars to be Jamie Foxx and the always goregeous Cameron Diaz. Foxx who usually is the comic relief, played it straight and gives in an oscar-worthy performance as Willy Beamen, the team's key player after favourite Dennis Quaid is injured. Although occasionally his character is a bastard, he serves up an hilarious music video, an intense performance and clearly has no problem getting his gear off, Foxx is bound to go places. Diaz was another key player in this flick, playing a tough as nails, take-no-crap owner of Pacino's team, and although usually sweet, the long smile is barely seen as she plays it straight and gets through to the cast and audiences, she is someone you don't want to mess with. Besides Pacino, Foxx, Diaz and Quaid (whose barely seen), the cast is rounded off with James Woods (another top star in a barely seen role), Lauren Holly, Elizabeth Berkley, Matthew Modine, Ann Margeret, Charlton Heston and rapper LL Cool J (showing he can act). With the shaky camera work adding to the film's realism this is one of the hottest films to date and should be seen by everyone from 15 above. The excessive language, graphic violence and shocking amount of nudity (I warn you when Diaz goes to the locker room prepare for a shock with a football player - you'll soon see what I mean) only allow it suitable for mature audiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Film September 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
First off, I want to let you know that I love football and movies, but am not an expert on either subject, just to let you know what kind of person this review is coming from.
Yes, the movie is 157 minutes long, but let me tell you, it's never boring. I disagree with many here in that I liked that visuals and film style that Oliver Stone used. I loved the little things he puts in a scene, especially the final play: when Beamen is looking into the endzone and you see lightning and an old player diving into the endzone, things like that. Of course, the performances are incredible, and it's a huge cast. Look for special cameos from NFL players and coaches, and of course Charlton Heston as the Commissioner.
I also like how the film starts out with a game, getting you into the action quickly. And then of course there's the length of the games. It's not just a two minute highlight, well except for the Monsoon Bowl. The first game last 20 minutes and the last is somewhere between 30 and 40. The pregame and halftime speeches are well written too.
In all, it has your basic, not too groundbreaking script, but a great cast, great visuals and sound, and exciting football sequences (the best I've ever seen). I recommend this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Oliver Stone tries out for NFL Films. September 25, 2000
Format:DVD
I am a passing football viewer (go Jets!) and I was interested in this movie, not because of the football, not because of Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz or Oliver Stone, because I love NFL films. They makes some of the best recordings and could give all other sports filmworks a run for their money. They take the gridiron and change it into the stuff of legends. When I saw my first NFL tape, I didn't know Football could be so dramatic.
The movie is based on several characters of the fake Miami Sharks. The first is the aging coach, who is losing control of his team to an owner who thinks she knows more about the game than the old grizzled 30 year veteran. The coach is a worn out Al Pacino, who shines in the role of Tony D'Amato. Al would make a great coach, because all he does is give grandiose speeches in his movies and yell real loud. The owner is Cameron Diaz, who took over the team when her father died. She has real veins of steel in this movie and goes toe to toe with Pacino and gives as well as she gets. Their relationship is very stormy and a delight to watch them both.
Another story is about Willie Beaman (Jamie Foxx). He is the the (Kurt) Warneresque third string QB given a chance to shine when the aging star Cap Rooney is injured. He is so nervous that he pukes on the fifty yard line (Right on the Team Logo!), but he begins to shine and nearly wins his first game for them. He is humble and awestruck in the early stages of the movie, but once his career gets going, he becomes this arrogant jerk who suddenly begins to think he's god gift to football. His arrogance nearly upends the team, as he disregards plays the coach tell him to run, he disses their star player Julian Washington (LL Cool J) and ...... of the Defensive Captain Luther Lavoy (A mean Lawrence Taylor).
